Ht. 4'8", Start: 125 lb, Today: 115 lb (BMI %tile: 93), Goal: 100 lb - hi guys, sorry, I'm writing on a phone. I need some advice. I used to weigh around 90 lbs, then over about six months we went on a cruise, and moved, and had a new school, and our six chickens were killed. Now it's holiday season. As you can tell, I've gained weight, but also lost some. I need help with the last 15 pounds. I'm running/walking up to two miles each day, but I need help with eating less. I try to do the eat half thing, but I end up eating the other half later because I get hungry. What can I do? Oh, fyi, my family isn't very supportive... And I haven't been to the docters in a while. Can anyone help?

Ht. 145 cm, Start: 97 kg, Today: 98 kg (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 41 kg - I need serious help! This is getting to the point where I can't even walk properly! Every day my family gather around and pull uo my shirt and start playing with my belly saying we really need to sort this out. I just sit there and sigh. My mum tries to help me around by pulling my belly up and motivating me. And I get weighed everyday. We bring the scale to the living room and everyone watches while I get weighed. It makes me so sad. :(  (Note: 145 cm, 98 kg is 4'9.1", 216.053 lb.)

Ht. 5'9", Start: 203 lb, Today: 218 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 175 lb - Hi Everyone,
I'm new here, but I've been trying to lose weight for years. It's never really bothered me, but those around me have commented on it a lot. I started trying to lose weight going daily to the gym and eating healthier foods, but I keep getting fatter because even though I'm eating those healthier foods i still sneak the cookies and other junk but I know I'm not fooling anyone. Sometimes I think whatever, I'll just get fat I dont care, I can still find a boyfriend who will like me even though I'm fat. I dont know should I just give up I dont know what else to do.

Ht. 5'10", Start: 413 lb, Today: 413 lb (BMI: 59), Goal: 250 lb - Hey everybody. My name is Richie and I'm seriously overweight and ready to drop some serious pounds. When I graduated from high school in 2008 I was the same height I am now and only 297, so I've put on 116 pounds in 3 years. I was always a fat kid, weighing 200 lbs in 7th grade and played football in high school, and ate big to play center. When football season ended I was 265. I go to college and work 40 hours a week as assistant manager at a restaurant. Everyone in my family is overweight and so is my girlfriend. Last week at work I squatted down to pick up something that dropped and my pants split all the way up the back (size 60). That incident made me take a step back n take a look at how fat I've gotten. I'm aslig for some advice from you all about how to start a diet. I've been trying to cut back on my intake since last week... (view more)

Ht. 5'1", Start: 125 lb, Today: 125 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 105 lb - So...
I had previously posted something on here, if you look at page 2, and if you read, I have gone nowhere, except that I didn't gain. So, I have another problem. You see, I don't want to tell my parents about how I feel, because that would be kind of embarrassing to say that to them, even with the fact that they are my parents. So, please reply soon.
